The Master of Science (MS) in Neuromotor Science* prepares individuals to advance the science of neuromotor control and biomechanics of human posture and movement in individuals across lifespan and spectrum of health and disability levels.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Neuromotor Science* provides a research focused degree meant to prepare graduates for research positions or teaching/research positions in academic settings, clinical research settings, or industry.
Physical Therapy
The entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program prepares students to diagnose, evaluate, and treat movement-related disorders in a variety of clinical and community settings. 
The transition to Doctor of Physical Therapy (t-DPT)* degree is an online program geared toward practicing physical therapists that wish to increase their professional knowledge base and advance in their careers. The Transition DPT program is no longer accepting applications. Please visit the APTA's Directory of Programs for available programs. 
Urban Bioethics 
The Master of Arts in Urban Bioethics (DPT/MA) will not only offer DPT students advanced education and exposure to the intangible aspects of the ethics of clinical practice (such as strategies for care in environments of diversity, disparity, and inequities), but also will better position graduates in their post-graduation employment searches in specialized leadership roles or post-doctoral education.


Student Association 

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Student Association (DPTSA) is a unique and highly engaging association dedicated toward enhancing the student experience during physical therapy (PT) school. Very few physical therapy schools have as productive of a student association as Temple's that encompasses all levels of entry-level students and faculty.
